NOTICE OF PETITION FOR RECOGNITION IN CHAPTER 15 CASE New August 1, 2013
A foreign representative commencing a chapter 15 case must forthwith give the notice required by Bankruptcy Rule 2002(q)(1) and must file proof of service in accordance with Local Bankruptcy Rule 9078-1. In addition to the information required under Bankruptcy Rule 2002(q), the notice must include a statement that, at the hearing, the Court may order the scheduling of a case management conference to consider the efficient administration of the case.
This rule was added in 2013 to include in the Local Bankruptcy Rules the notice requirements relating to chapter 15 cases promulgated by General Order M-323, with stylistic changes to conform to Bankruptcy Rule 2002(q)(1). The second sentence was added so that parties have notice that the Court may, at the hearing on the petition for recognition of a foreign proceeding, schedule a case management conference to consider the efficient administration of the case. General Order M-323 was abrogated and replaced by this local rule in 2013.
